“My son lives in Australia and just bought land there in a small wine region. I took this training to see how I can help him as he works towards replanting and rebuilding his vineyard. Although New Jersey is very different from where my son lives, I’ve gotten a great understanding from this class of the things you need to be aware of when starting out like grape selection, variety selection, planning before you plant, what it takes to manage a crop.”
“The wealth of information and knowledge of the presenters has been phenomenal. And I had no idea before this class about the support that is provided to the community through Cooperative Extension!”
